NaNo Winner (1)

July is over. A month of scrambling to get word counts in, sweating over a crumbling plot, disregarding the dishes, and crying over days when you’re behind. After all of this, how did I fare?

That little winner bullseye up there is indeed mine! I succeeded in winning July’s Camp NaNoWriMo. Now let’s take a less serious moment for me to freak out with excitement and strut around the house doing my victory dance!

This was me three days ago. For real. I’m closer to finishing this novel than I’ve ever been on any other story and I couldn’t be more excited. If it weren’t for my fresh gum graft I would still be celebrating with adult beverages as we speak.
